The Rave Webmuseum of Cyberart - A curated online international permanent art collection as Web Cyberculture
Dr. Rodney Chang ('Pygoya' in his curatorial role as ringmaster) has assembled
a dauntingly intelligent array of current best practice in this field. Exploring the
recesses of his chosen artistic niche is as rewarding as it is informative.

Trahimur omnes studio laudis.
We are all attracted by the desire for praise.
Thank you so very much for accepting
my work into your museum. It is the
most unique and fascinating gallery on the Web. I am very honored to be a
part of it. - Debbi Germann, 1997
The show looks FANTASTIC!! The vrml
is too COOL for words! You really worked your magic!
I am SO fortunate I can't believe it!! And I have just discovered another perk to online exhibiting
- I'll be able to keep a copy to view and enjoy in the future! (That's better than "real" life!)
Thank you for the honor and this incredible experience. - Denise Ruzich, 1998

The Rave Webmuseum-The Permanent Collection Exhibition CyberHall (vrml)
Since 1996 the virtual museum has been reviewing art on the Internet. Artists and organizations displaying art of distinction and are important contributors to cyberculture, or online experience that enriches one's cultural life, are contacted and invited to enter work into the collection. We like to think of it as some sort of first generation Internet "Hall of Fame" for emerging digital and cyber directed art, at the turn of the century. The Rave Webmuseum serves as a repository of Cyberart ; it is a permanent online museum collection. However there are short term feature exhibitions in the Rave's Spotlight Gallery for masters and Webmuseum Art College Gallery for art students and their faculty. Scheduled invitational exhibitions are also held at The Pygoya Webmuseum of Cyberart in its CyberHall and VIP Suite gallery.
Detailing documentation about the art and the artists is available. However intent is to make the visiting of The Rave Webmuseum purely visual, with support of sound and a sense of cyber-architectural space. The supportive text for the body of art is kept minimal as to not distract from the displayed great works of art. Keep in mind these works were generated for and from Web cyberspace. That makes it historically a new art form ("cyberart") and also you a participant in a revolutionary way of experiencing a visit to the art museum. Unlike art exhibited at many other Internet sites, digital art here are"originals" since they were created with computers. Most of the work included also were created for the primary purpose of launch into world cyberculture. Many works are now gone from the original web site from which it was first discovered by our curatorial scouting Cyberstaff. However now these online survivors maintain their omnipotent virtual existence, readily accessible by any visitor around the globe, in a strange new form of artistic posterity. (May 24, 1997)
To accommodate the abundant source of digital art displayed throughout the Internet, the Rave Webmuseum proudly establishes two showcase VRML galleries as adjunct exhibitions to the permanent collection space. Both galleries have scheduled feature shows but are not permanent exhibits. They are the Spotlight Gallery and the Webmuseum Art College Gallery -
Rave Webmuseum's SPOTLIGHT GALLERY - displays digital works of artists that are masters in their medium and make significant cultural contributions to the Internet at other art sites through digital art.

Daisuke Matunobu with work inducted into the Rave, humorously sent us this
photo of himself with Rave's Inducted Award ; he cleverly cut & paste it unto the
photo; see the actual virtual award icon on the Japanese Web site homepage
please contact us for possible collaboration between Rave Webmuseum and your digital art
program; VRML space includes room for student work and another for faculty show statement
and, if desired, space for faculty work.
My art is purely digital. It is created with computer programs purchased or that I write.The images I create are not based on reality. They do not model a physical reality, nor at times are they abstractions or impressions of something physical. My programs are mathematical in nature. The mathematics of chaos play an important role in the generation of these images. However, the mathematics is merely a tool to generate the art. These images do not depict a mathematical concept. I use mathematics to create and manipulate the shapes and colors. I create and discard many images, tuning the results until I arrive at something that resonates with my emotional state. Hopefully the viewer experiences similar emotions. WHO AM I?
